About the Program

True Transparent was launched in 2019 accommodate the growing need for ethical manufacturing.  True Transparent is a certificate program which has allowed us to partner with overseas factories meeting our specific criteria focused on the idea of safety, transparency, ethics and social responsibility.   

These partnerships have allowed us flexibility to mobilize the right skilled workers to deliver unique manufacturing solutions.  This, paired with an unwavering focus on delivering value to your business bottom line and the ability to leverage innovation to meet emerging challenges and keep you at the fore is our mission.

Criteria for our certification program includes but is not limited to: 

Paying all employees a local living wage 

Operating in a safe and healthy work environment

Respect the environment and strive to maximize sustainable practices

Comply with the the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Plus, follow local laws on child and forced labor.  

Provide a gender equal, non-discriminatory environment for all 

Promote ethical trade

In the interest of transparency please be advised, we have not yet issued all certificates for our operational factories.  Because we were in the process of planning our final visit to the factory to do an in person evaluation at the same time our world was shook with the Corona Virus we have had to postpone our final visit and thus held off on our final evaluations.  We have however hired representatives in various countries to visit factories on our behalf and report back with their findings and evaluations.  We maintain regular communication with our factories to continually evolve and improve our certificate practices and embrace a mindset that is unwilling to compromise when it comes to keeping people safe at work. 

Currently True Transparent is operating in Mexico, China, Portugal and Pakistan.  We are continually seeking out reputable factories who share our beliefs and goals to partner and grow with.

Positive Change in our industry is possible, and I'm proud to be a part of it.
